Tips for Dating Older Men


tips for dating older men, silver fox, gold diggerA lot of people have contacted us looking for some tips for dating older men.

There is something about older guys that is attractive. Maybe it’s the fact that they are a bit more worldly wise and comfortable with themselves than your average 21 year old frat boy. They are usually a bit more interesting and usually have higher standards when judging a girls behavior.
So what important tips for dating older men must you keep in mind?

Older men have different interests and priorities

As guys mature and get older, they tend to change their interests and priorities. Most guys in their twenties go out clubbing or go out trying to pick up girls with their friends at the weekend. As they get older they slowly change and go out less and less.

Added to this, they usually have an established career and are not too worried about money. This is fantastic, as they will often have more time to spend with you instead of going out with the boys or focusing on their jobs.

Older men have higher standards for your behavior

Remember when you were 18 and you did a lot of flirting with other guys in front of your boyfriend?

My girlfriends and I had a discussion about this before writing this tips for dating older men article. We realized that we all did it a bit when we were younger.

At the time all of our boyfriends put up with it as they were about the same age (18).

We found that as we started dating older men, they tolerated this sort of behavior less and less before ending the relationship.

Older men have been on more dates and in more relationships than younger guys, so they have seen it all before.

So one of the best tips fro dating older men that I can give you is to remember that older men have higher standards when it comes to your behavior. Things like flirting with other men and turning up late for dates won’t make them jealous. It will make lose respect for you.

Don’t be a gold digger

Sure, we’d like to think of ourselves as independent women. But at the back of our minds, we would still love to find a guy that wants to take care of us. Most of us don’t want to be a housewife or anything like that, but having a guy who could support us financially if we wanted him to is kind of sexy and attractive. Maybe it’s just evolution.

With that in mind, a lot of older guys have their guards up when it comes to dating younger women. They are afraid that you are just some gold digger looking for rich men, so you have to be careful about how you treat the relationship.

If you insist on him paying for everything, then you are sending bad signals. It’s better to pay for your half. But it’s best to pay your half unless he insists on paying. There is no need to make a big deal out of paying as long as you are happy to pay if he expects it.

Beware the ‘beauty hunter’

It’s great dating an older guy, especially when he can show you new experiences and you are both compatible with each other.

There is a flip side however. Some older men are only out to find a ‘hot piece of arm candy’. They only want a cute girl, but don’t care about who she is in the slightest. Bottom line: They only want you for your looks.

Beauty Hunters do things like:
  • Only hang out with you at night.
  • They don’t have much interest in your hobbies or interests.
  • They don’t introduce you to their social circle.
  • They call a lot when they’re drunk (booty call)
  • They never want to do what you want to do
If you’re happy to be with a guy who likes you only for your beauty/youth, then that’s your prerogative. But if you don’t like that sort of thing, watch out for these major signs and stay away!
